Vanessa: The ‘Financial Revolution’ and the myriad of ways tech disruption is ubiquitous in Finance is something I wanted to learn more about.  A detailed understanding of key technologies such as Cloud computing and Blockchain is important for me to understand as a marketer that influences customer experiences in my role, and also as an end consumer of the technology itself.

Regardless of your specific role in Finance, I believe a deep understanding of the key Fintech innovations is essential and this course was able to provide that.

The course also allowed me to learn about the different career opportunities that exist and consider options for pivoting to become more specialised.

CFTE: What did you enjoy the most about the course?

Vanessa: Hearing from leading industry disruptors – understanding the unique business models they’ve created and their advice about how to forge a path in Fintech.
